I expected a light and charming book similar to the original Lilian Jackson Braun books, since the author used her name in the title. The foul language, the way the plot drifts off, and the subject matter all add up to a big disappointment. I would like to trade this one back for another book. Wish I had read a copy from the library rather than having wasted money on this trash. I have removed it from my IPod.
This was one of the worst audio books I have come across. I was expecting a witty and fun spoof honoring one of my favorite book series. Instead I received a book that ridiculed the Cat Who books and their writer and contained gratuitous sex and language. A very disappointing book, audio or otherwise. Audible.com, you should give a refund on this one!!!
I to expected a good mystery book by Lillian Jackson Braun, I didn't realize that she wasn't the auther until I statarted listing to it. The foul language and the subject matter all added up to a big disappointment and this is just the first chaper. I had to get up and check to see if I down loaded the right book. Wish I had read the reviews before I purchased it so I wouldn't have wasted my money on this trash.
I like a good parody - but this isn't it. if it had mirrored the whimsical nature of the originals, then it might have been a tale worth listening too. But sadly, it's a loser of a book. I'm sorry I didn't read some reviews before I downloaded it and spent my credit. It's not even a book to go to sleep with! Avoid like the plague is my strong advice.
I have been a fan of The Cat Who series for years. This is vulgar and crude. The worst book I have ever listened to or read!! The only reason I gave it one star is because no stars was not accepted.
I REALLY WANT MY CREDIT BACK!!! >:[ Biggest waste of my time and money in the past year... seriously, and I couldn't stand to listen to more than 17 minutes. I had to restart it twice before that convincing myself it will get better, they're just trying to shock you. No, no, it doesn't get better. Two references to masterbastion, two to breasts and I shut it off at Jim imagining someone starting to disrobe the second reference to breasts. That did it. That doesn't include references to gay bars, decapitation, and one use of the F word so far. This was only 17 minutes worth!! Does the author have NO sense of audience? Obviously, why did I ask. The main readers will be those who love the Cat Who series, who more likely aren't the biggest fans of trash... DUH.
a different story.
Not sure yet.
I would trash the whole book. It was a slam on Miss Braun.
will be deleting it from my library.
vaulgar, disgussing, very disappointing for a the cat who book. wish I had not wasted my credit on this book BAD BAD BAD
I hope no one would enjoy a book that mocks good and moral writing.
Not to have perverted a good series of stories.
he was ok
The "The Cat Who.." series of books are a good clean read. Why can't this type of writing just be respected and not be mocked? For some reason I thought this book would be a similar type - not a total opposite! I don't believe it even deserves one star. Very disappointed I wasted my money on this trash.
The writing of this book was not satirical, it was just plain pathetic. Substituting masturbation in as some form of comical statement was in incredibly poor taste and if had not been that I thought a satirical book about the Braun series might have been fun, I would not have purchased this book. It was ultimately my most disappointing book from audible.
most all of it. Horrid
